Asia’s megacities with their populations of 10 or more million, appear to be centres of chaos, but we will look at how the need to enjoy and cope with life in them, makes them centres for some of the most creative and unique Asian innovations.

From time-saving and feature-crazy digital applications and platforms that allow Asian consumers to squeeze in as many activities, experiences, interactions and tasks as possible into every moment (and not miss out on anything.)

To concepts and solutions that help them improve or solve the frustrations and dangers of overcrowded living (transport and traffic jams, lack of living space and greenery, as well as pollution and food safety and health issues).

We take a look at examples from every corner of the region (not just China and India, but also South East Asia, Nepal, Pakistan) and how they're trying to answer their population's changing needs.

  • Intro to me:
  • A lot of this has to do with breakdown and chaos has to do with sheer overpopulation to an extreme level. These arent cities these are Megacities or even Metacities <br /> Shanghai is now the world’s largest city with a population of over 23 million <br /> Mumbai has 12.5 million <br /> Dhaka 12-15 million <br /> Jakarta is 10, 188,000 <br /> <br />

  • Due for completion by 2030, and adjacent to the South Korean city ofIncheon, 8City is an ambitious one-stop tourist destination with an extensive range of features and services created to appeal to Chinese travelers. Designed in a figure ‘8’ (which traditionally symbolizes prosperity), the islands will feature luxury residences and hotels, casinos, several shopping malls, a theme park, a Formula One racing track, a concert hall, a ‘hallyu’ entertainment center, and medical tourism facilities. <br />   <br />

  • In April 2012, Chinese brand Tencent added three features to its free WeChat chat-messaging app, to allow users to connect with each other at random. Via the ‘Drift Bottle’ feature, users can ‘throw’ a text or voice message into a virtual ocean for any other user to retrieve and reply to. Meanwhile, ‘Look Around’ allows users to view the profiles of nearby users, with the option of connecting, and the ‘Shake’ function automatically links any two users within half a mile who happen to shake their phones at the same time. <br /> <br />   <br /> Link: http://www.wechatapp.com/ <br /> <br />
  • Path launched in November 2010, launched its 3rd version in March 2013. Within the first 24 hours, it debuted free private messaging as well as premium in-app paid emoji "stickers", and made more money (from affiliated revenue) than it had since it first started. It has 6 million users.

  • To celebrate its launch in February 2013, the Lahore Metro Bus System waived commuter fares during a month-long promotion. The urban transport scheme is Pakistan’s first bus rapid transit (BRT) system, enabling public buses to operate unencumbered by local traffic via a dedicated 27-kilometer long bus corridors that links the suburbs to Lahore’s city centre. A fleet of 45 buses are capable of transporting up to 12,000 commuters per hour; BRTs typically travel approximately 30% faster than traditional public buses. In less than a decade bus rapid transit corridors will go from zero to nineteen in India. <br /> <br /> Link: http://www.ltc.gop.pk/ <br />

  • August 2013 saw the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology unveil the Armadillo-T: a concept electric car that can fold itself in half. Created to save parking space in traffic-congested cities, the compact two-seater can ‘tuck’ part of the rear structure away during parking, occupying one-third of a regular spot. With a top speed of 60 kilometers per hour, the lithium-powered Armadillo-T can be charged in under ten minutes. Drivers can also operate and fold their cars remotely via mobile app. <br /> <br /> Link: <br /> http://www.kaist.edu/english/01_about/06_news_01.php?req_P=bv&req_BIDX=10&req_BNM=ed_news&pt=17&req_VI=4435 <br /> <br />

  • Extreme and growin situ in crisis, so really sucking air is cool but again long tail vs short term means maybe rethinking the model, experimenting with whole new ways of building to running cities. So in come Smart Cities.
  • January 2013 saw Chinese philanthropist and entrepreneur Chen Guangbiao unveil mobile stores in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou selling sealed, pull-top cans of oxygen for CNY 5 each. Containing approximately enough oxygen for three deep breaths, approximately ten million cans were sold over ten days, during a bout of record pollution. <br />
  • Danger Maps is a Chinese nonprofit that tracks health and safety hazards via an online mapping system which overlays potential dangers from pollutants (toxic waste, oil refineries, or radiation hazards) on Baidu Maps. In April 2013, the site began accepting crowdsourced user input, to add to data aggregated from China’s environment protection agency. It also expanded its maps to include civic themes such as missing people and child abuse. <br />
  • Crowd-funded in July 2012, GalliGalli is a wiki platform that digitally maps the plethora of narrow, unmarked alleyways that snake through Kathmandu. By allowing Nepalese citizens to contribute information on streets with which they are familiar, the wiki creates a viable, working map for residents and tourists alike, overlaid with information on government and transport services and local venues. <br /> <br /> Link: http://galligalli.org
